Planting seeds of sustainability 

Growing Paper

Sustainable travel companies aim to minimize their impact on the environment while promoting responsible tourism practices. Using seed paper in their marketing materials reinforces this message and demonstrates their commitment to sustainability.


You can promote sustainability to your clients. By giving out business cards, branded materials and corporate gifts made of seed paper, eco-friendly travel companies can encourage their customers to take actions towards sustainability. As customers plant the paper and watch the seeds grow into plants, they will be reminded of both your company and the importance of taking care of the environment
